Joseph Gott trained under the Neoclassical sculptor John Flaxman in London between 1798 and 1802. He moved to Rome in 1822, where he established a distinguished reputation as a sculptor. Gott rejected the austere classicism of his master, Flaxman, and his contemporary, John Gibson, in favour of an elegant romanticism, though with classical overtones.

Gott seems to have had a particular affinity with dogs, and composed various playful groups of dogs and children. Compare the present composition to a terracotta of a Boy with a Greyhound, sold in these rooms, 8 July 2003, lot 175; and further to A Boy with a Ball and a Dog, exhibited in Leeds in 1972 (op. cit. plate 58).
